    Are u on drugs man? the DS "LITE" is the final release. Just like the psp slim is the final psp.
    -Now all they are doing is creating Different colors for it!
    -Dont go by he say she say... THEY ARE NOT GOING TO MAKE A NEW DS. My uncle is one of the people that created and designed the arm7 and arm9 processors for it. And he is the one that helped design the RAW engine for the Wii(Its basic wii mote controls.)
    -NOW what they will be releasing is a Wii with a built in sensor bar and with other usless features.-So theres a heads up with the down low on the wii

    Umm.. You do realize the ARM7/ARM9 processors are made from a different company, right?

    And it's not only for the DS. It's used in iPods too.

    Yeah, Nintendo is going to secretly release a new DS without ANY news about it.



    Also, did I forget to mention they have 1 month to do this?

    They stated that they weren't making a new design for the DS 2, so, obviously as Misternero stated PHAILURE TO DA UBER MAX!

    Too fragile, man mine gets all sorts of abuse and keeps on going. Only if you bend the top screen back does it get too fragile, and I've done that a couple of times.

    Wont be any new models before Christmas anyway, and thats when most people will be looking for one!

    You just reworded my post, Hiratai.

    Newsflash for everyone: There isn't gonna be another DS redesign. Probably not even next year. Nintendo hasn't even hinted it, or given any kind of info for it yet.

    Are YOU on drugs?

    First off, due to the nature of the Wii remote's IR camera, the sensor bar must be placed near the center of the monitor. If the sensor bar was built right into the Wii, you would have to position the console exactly at the center of the television.

    Unless your 'uncle' worked for both ARM and Nintendo, I don't see how he "created and designed" the DS processors AND worked on a Wiimote library. Separate companies did these things, Nintendo does not make all the components inside their systems.

    Please, take your lies off this forum. You're not fooling any of us. [​IMG]

    Nintendo would only do this if sales were lagging and they needed to refuel interest in the DS. They aren't lagging so they won't mess with anything. In fact, I'll be surprised if we ever see another redesign of the DS. I think the next handheld Nintendo does will be a completely new one, and will not come out for 3 to 10 years.

    Other then the whole cracked hinge issue, i don't see how the DS can be branded as fragile that easily. I've abused mine through and through and it was fine up till a few days ago [​IMG] Said hinge cracked and screen nearly ripped off, but heh, whatever, i carry the thing in my pockets every day, i use it every day for several hours too, so nothing too odd here.

    All that to say, my DS has seen lots and lots of different kinds of abuse, be it by the amount of time i used it, the way i treated/carried it, the fact i've dropped it more often then i dropped my pants for my girlfriend (In before noob lolz wavez, it's a comparison, so please stuff it, i could've used "more often then my friend's sister ex-boyfriends turned gay.). My DS has seen its share of hard treatments and after having it for nearly a year, it broke down, and not even because of my use (Since it's now being repaired due to a cracked hinge, which the smarter of you will remember being a defect in a batch of DS Lites.)

    The DS is in no way "weak" or "fragile".
